Thankful by Eileen Spinelli

 I have another great kids book review for you today! Thankful, by Eileen Spinelli is a book that celebrates the big and little blessing in our lives.

I am always looking for ways to encourage my kids to appreciate the gifts that God had given us. Having a thankful heart can make hard situations a lot easier. Besides that, a thankful heart is pleasing to God! I always think of this verse,

"in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you."
-1 Thessalonians 5:18

Thankful is a lovely, poetic book that is an easy read with little ones. The book is really quite simple, but some of it is very beautiful. My favorite page was,

"The dancer is thankful for the beat, that stirs her heart and hips and feet."

 My kids enjoyed reading through it with me. The rhyming and illustrations kept their interest. The pictures are all in lovely, muted colors. Each of the illustrations revolves around a family portraying the text.

With Thanksgiving on the way, I am sure this is a book we will be reading again and again. It got our family talking about all the things we are thankful for. I love when a book can spark a discussion with my kids!

I received a copy of Thankful in exchange for my honest review.
